Succulent Serenity Collection Now Available

I am so excited to share this video announcing the official launch of my Succulent Serenity collection for Sizzix. My collection is now available at your local retailers.

Mother’s Day Magic Card

In honor of Mother’s Day, I created a magical card using my Mother’s Day clear stamp set by Sizzix. The best way to explain the magic of this card is by sharing a little video. I’m rather new at this filming, editing, uploading process so I apologize for the quality but I think you can […]

Embossed Rinea Foil Butterflies

Valentine Birds on a Branch

Welcome to the Designer Crafts Connection February Link up. The theme is Last Minute Valentines. This project is so simple and fun. These are my Valentine Birds on a Branch delivering hearts to my Valentine. I began by adhering vintage music sheets to Little Sizzles Mat Boards by Sizzix. This is a thick board so the bird’s […]

Valentine Art Heart Tartlets

I love hunting at estate sales and garage sales. Several years ago, I found these heart-shaped Swedish Tartlet pans. They are small and perfect for assemblage projects. My first project was created using Cranberry Alcohol Ink in the center since this particular tin had some scratches in the finish. I placed three drops of the […]
